LM #346 - June Holiday Insights - "National Fruits And Vegetables Month"

Hello! Happy Sunday to you! We hope you are having a good weekend! 
Today is the start of our June challenges, and DT Tina is providing our challenges for us in this month! 

Our theme for June is "June Holiday Insights" and our challenges will be based off of holidays during the month of June. 
June is National Frutis and Vegetables month, so our first challenge for June is:

LM #346 - National Fruits And Vegetables Month  - Use fruits and/or vegetables on your layout. This can be in the photos, in the papers, or in the embellishments, or all three!

We are so excited to have Wendy joining us as our guest designer for June! Wendy creates such fun and beautiful layouts that are sure to inspire you! 
June GDT - Wendy

My name is Wendy Crowe and I have been scrapbooking for about 15 years now.  I am addicted to the traditional paper scrapping.  I love having lots of “stuff” to play with.  I am married to a very patient guy who makes sure I have plenty of “me” time.  I have 3 wonderful kids,  2 daughters (26 and 15) and a son (9).  With those age differences, I am lucky to have dabbled in just about every subject that can be scrapbooked.  And I get to shop…a lot!  I am happy to have found challenge blogs like Lasting Memories that really offer lots of inspiration.  Thanks for letting me be a Guest Designer!

Be sure to check out Wendy's blog - Getting Started - to see more of her beautiful work!


Here is what the design team came up with:

We will be offering up a prize for June. All you need to do is play along with any of our challenges this month and link up by June 30th for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to any online store of your choice!

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you find time to create with us this week!
